Guruwar Puja: This year on May 12, the day of Guru Brihaspati Dev of the Gods is falling on Thursday. This day is also the Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Vaishakh month and on Thursday itself, due to Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra, an auspicious yoga named Matang is also being formed. At this time, fasting on Thursday Puja or Mohini Ekadashi gives very auspicious benefits. In this auspicious yoga, the fruits of worship and fasting are obtained very quickly. Lord Vishnu took the incarnation of Mohini in the Shukla Paksha of Vaishakh month. In this form, Lord Vishnu made the gods drink nectar and played an important role in the defeat of the demons. That is why on the day of Mohini Ekadashi, people keep a fast to get rid of all the troubles, to be full of money and grains.
They worship Mata Lakshmi and Shri Hari Narayan. Along with being the importance of Guru, Thursday is also very dear to Lord Vishnu. Worshiping Lord Vishnu’s mother Lakshmi on this day gives desired results.
Mohini Ekadashi is fasting on 12th May, Thursday. The Mohini form of Lord Vishnu is specially worshiped on this day. After bathing early in the morning, wearing yellow clothes, make Lord Vishnu sit on a yellow seat and worship with Goddess Lakshmi. Perform Jalabhishek on the idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu with a conch shell in the right direction. Conch is one of the 14 gems obtained from the ocean after churning the ocean. That is why Maa Lakshmi is very dear.
Shankh is also called the brother of Goddess Lakshmi. By pouring saffron milk in the Dakshinavarti conch and anointing Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu, all sorrows are destroyed. There is an increase in the happiness and prosperity of the family. There is freedom from home troubles, and the possibility of money arrival increases. Therefore, worship Lord Vishnu and Mahalakshmi with a concentrated mind and peace of mind and perform aarti.
Offer food to Brahmins at the time of breaking the fast. Donate as much donation as possible, it increases wealth, splendor and opulence in the house.
